Weekly works update

Each week Kempsey Shire Council prepares a report detailing the work that our infrastructure crews have carried out in the week prior and plan to deliver in the coming week.

Scheduled work is merely an indication of intentions, not a guarantee of work being carried out as factors including weather and unexpected needs can impact priorities.

LAST UPDATE: Friday 23 February 2024
